I would recommend this build, it is perfect for your needs. From 6-Cores processing power, to over 1500 CUDA cores and 16Gb of RAM, I'd say this thing is perfect.

Go with option #2. You get a better gpu, and when doing 3D rendering, a better gpu is just better.

-use the 4930k when it comes out later
-fancy looking ram sticks will do nothing in terms of performance
-forget the crappy liquid coolers
-the gigabyte boards offer the best value for the money. the price of a equivalent asus would be the p9x79 pro at 309 ish
-there is practically no difference between mainstream SSDs and the top of the line models. you pay for milliseconds worth of performance improvments
-a 650w psu will handle a x79 rig with a high end GPU. a 850w is definitely not needed. if you were thinking of SLI, forget it as SLI will have no benefits towards rendering results
-the arc midi r2 for 59.99 is a great value

thank you very much :) 


How much is option 1 would be the first question. For option 2, I have some recommendations that I think would be beneficial to performance and longevity. Also, must this computer be build now? Because 2011 is dying and will be replaced by a new 2011 in 2014 with haswell-e. If it must be build today though then the 3930k on 2011 is the correct choice.


Cooler Master CM Storm 150$ - Debatable Product IMO

do not buy the 3930k. it would be completely pointless when ivy bridge is around the corner

as for the case, niether of them come close in terms of quality and price

will ok " didn't really get why :p " but you are the expert
what a bout cooling system ??! not necessary
note: that it might be rendering for more than day without being shut-ed down

the havik 140 is more than enough for cooling. you can still easily overclock the CPU to 4.5ghz and render all day without having any issues. however, your mileage of the overclock can vary due to how lucky you get with the CPU
